Non tiled panes in application frames - Some advice ??

I want to use a non-standard layout, i.e. non-tiled panes in a
application frame using CLIM 1.0 with Franz ACL 4.1Beta.
I came up with a solution using only standard clim functions. I use
"open-window-stream" to create the "free" panes within a clim pane and
I use draw functions to paint labels. Those window streams are bound to
frame state variables. Is there some smarter way of doing what I did,
besides writing more abstract code ?
In CLIM 1.0, this is about the best you can do. CLIM 2.0 will be more
powerful in this regard.
I put the code in our anonymous ftp:
188.8.131.52 (= un2sun38.unige.ch)
If some friendly CLIM guru could look at this code and give me some
critique, I'd be very glad! Of course, this code is for everyone who
